Mission Statement

Humanity for Horses is a 501c3 non-profit organization devoted to rescuing horses from slaughter, abuse, neglect and abandonment providing them sanctuary for the rest of their life. While rescuing horses, we also free the other animals that have been imprisoned with them in the abusive or abandoned situations. We do not adopt out these horses. Because the animals have experienced such abuse and neglect, we are devoted to giving them top quality nutrition, traditional and non-traditional medicine, and endless hours of love and comfort.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
No
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Yes
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
No

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

We are a group of people who had been working together in two other nonprofits, www.harnessinghappiness.org and www.savetherain.org. In 2012, our hearts were broken when a law was passed that allowed for horses to be slaughtered in the USA, so Humanity for Horses was birthed. The reason for this name is obvious - humanity must speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Fortunately, after much hard work, in January 2014, the U.S. Government effectively eliminated horse slaughter permanently. As a result, this important action is expected to create a greater need for collaborative equine rescue efforts, because many more horses will now survive the horrors of auction and slaughterhouse and will need to be properly cared for. The more money we can raise, the more animals we can save. We are completely dedicated and devoted to putting an end to their needless suffering and untimely deaths. In less than two years, we have rescued 184 horses and 160 other animals, not including cats and dogs. We purchased 151 acres of pasture at the base of Mount Shasta in Northern California. We have witnessed a miracle at our sanctuary. People who come, whether that be staff, medical assistants, farriers, veterinarians, visitors or people delivering horses, have all had the same reaction. When they first enter the gate, they have stated that they felt overwhelmed with a sense of peace and hope. When animals come in, we always try to tune into who they would like to be with.
